Description

The label on back of tile reads... 

The true meaning behind Celtic designs is lost in the mists of history, little real documentary evidence exists today. Whatever the thoughts in the minds of those artists long ago we encourage you to enjoy their beauty and dream your own thoughts.

The Celtic harp is based on the ancient lyre and as such is one of the worlds oldest instruments. One of the oldest of these harps dates back to the 14th century and is preserved at Trinity College Dublin.

The harp has been a symbol of Irish Spirit over the centuries and was used on the first unofficial Irish flag until the Tricolor was adopted as the national flag in 1919. It is however used on the flag of the president of Ireland.

We make our tiles from stoneware clay, they are individually hand crafted and are twice fired in our kilns. The Parchment tiles are made with rough torn edges which gives a unique artistic form. They are mounted on a 7 1/2 inches square black wood frame. A wall hanging clip, rubber wall protectors and a descriptive label (see individual tile picture for details) is attached to the back of the frame.

All tiles are Individually Boxed.
